Let’s ‘Irish Up' and Raise Funds for D/FW Rescues! March 13 2014

I’m Valentino, the Director of Wag and the bones behind the operation of Shaggy Chic. If this is your first visit, welcome and be sure to check back often because I have a lot to bark about including scoop on contests, new product line announcements, event appearances and more!

Well, I have been super busy with the launch of Shaggy Chic Apparel. My first appearance was at the North Texas Irish Festival a couple of weeks ago. It was a blast! I met so many people, dogs, and even a couple of cats and rabbits. Boy, those Irish Setters and Scotties know how to party! Tails were wagging for days!

“Why is a Pekingese appearing at an Irish festival?” you ask? Good question. This year's theme was Gaelic 'Bark of the Irish' Tee
Erin Go Bark!, and celebrated the unique role of dogs in Celtic culture. It is also the largest gathering of animal rescue groups of any festival in Dallas. WooHoo! Put your paws in the air! That’s super important to me and everyone at Shaggy Chic. My fur siblings, cousins and I are all rescues!
 
My paw-see and I met so many incredible rescue groups at the festival. To help raise funds for them, an important mission of Shaggy Chic, we have partnered with North Texas Irish Festival to have $5 from each Gaelic shirt sold go to North Texas Irish Festival, who will then disburse funds to the attending animal rescue groups. Available shirts include ‘Choirt an hÉireann’ (Bark of the Irish) and ‘Is é mocatnipper’ (My cat is a nipper).
 
Adults (in both women’s and unisex styles) are $19.95 and youth are $15.95. Shirts are available at Gaelic 'My Cat is a Nipper' Teewww.ShaggyChicApparel.com.  
       

You want to look like a Top Dog or a Cool Kitty? Purchase one of tees. And, make it a game. Have people guess what your shirt means. If they guess wrong, they have to buy you a drink. That’s what any fun loving lad or lass would do. ;-)

Ciao for now!
